Edradour, which market itself as Scotland’s little gem, is one of the smallest and most picturesque Scottish distilleries.
The last change of ownership took place in 2002, when Signatory Vintage, an Independent Bottling Company owned by Andrew Symington took over the operations. The product range expanded immediately making that small and old-fashioned distillery (130 000 liters of spirit per annum) one of the most innovative whisky producers. The Natural Cask Strength expression presented in handsome decanter was introduced in 2003 and immediately caught customers’ attention. Here we have one of the latest releases, whisky distilled in February 2006 and aged in ex-bourbon casks. Released on July 15, 2016 at 60.2% abv with an outrun of 1772 bottles.

Palate: lots of vanilla, caramel, honey, baked apples, peaches, lemon curd, dashes of white pepper and ginger and delicate oaky notes.
